Ever noticed how photos taken on camera phones (including the iPhone) notoriously blow out the sky and/or leave the subject in the foreground in dark shadows? Sure, "touch to focus" helps, but it usually can't compensate enough in high contrast settings.
A colleague and fellow-PPUG member Bob sends along this great tip for an app that I purchased immediately after seeing the results.
My wife and I received our new iPhone 4s on Monday. The built-in camera does well in low light, but seems to blow out the highlights pretty badly in high contrast situations. The angle of view is quite wide for a camera phone.
Here is a photo taken with the iPhone's built-in Camera app. The second photo (below) is the same subject photographed using the Pro HDR app ($1.99, App Store) in just two exposures, in automatic mode and processed completely in the iPhone 4.
The last photo (below) was taken with the Pano app ($2.99, App Store) with five photos, stitched in the phone while you wait. Pretty cool.
